Christmas Day with the Pox

This was probably the worst day of the chickenpox for me - I'd slept really badly, and felt feverish, and with abdominal pain today. I barely got out of bed for most of the day.
When I'd spoken to my doctor on the phone yesterday around lunchtime she'd asked how many spots I had, I think at that point I'd guessed about 100 all over. By today it must have been more like a thousand. I looked really quite hideous, and found seeing myself in the mirror actually quite upsetting, to be honest.
I did at least manage to see Erika open a couple of presents - I'd bought her a couple of toys from In the Night Garden (a TV show on CBeebies she seems to enjoy) and when she opened one she appeared to shake her head in disbelief. That was rather lovely.
We postponed our Christmas dinner as I barely had any appetite, instead Chie made baked potatoes for dinner this evening. I managed to eat about half of one.
